I used to spend more time trying to find leaking manifold fittings and hoses than it now takes me to evacuate a 65' EL new lineset.(Less than 20 minutes to 190mics).Less is definently better when it comes to evacs.
I bought the basic one and added a high pressure transducer. Then I bought extra pipe straps off of e-bay. I only use it for SC & SH readings. I have other tools that I use for air velocity and volume.
It looks awesome....... would you recommend it? I'll add it to my tool list if so....looks like the x-ducers would be durable,the meter as well for matter.
I strongly recommend the Cooper mfm300. It is durable,dependable and very light weight.After you start using these you really start to appreciate not having to use hoses for anything but evac and charging. And I have those tasks whittled down to one Gorilla hose. Hoses suck......and anything that requires more than one hose really sucks. I refuse to lug something around that weighs 20 lbs just to take SC and SH readings.
I can bag this thing and my Fluke along with a klien 11-1 and read a unit faster than most guys can get thier manifold gages set up.
